2.25" Rocky Road plus 265/70/17's will get you close to 4" lift overall. You will have to address tire rub however at the front. I have this set up and wish I had gone with the 4" Superlift.

With the 2.25 rocky road couldnt you just put spacers in to stop the rub

I am considering spacers attm. I am worried about placing a 'moment' on the suspension components and possible early failure. Lots of people use these with success......Also concerned aobut wheels outside of the wells and impacting airflow/handling at highway speeds.

Its both front and rear. There is a poly spacer for the rear that fits under the springs. The BFG 265/70/17's show diameter of 31.7" Stock 245/65/17's show diameter of 29.5" So you get about an inch of height overall.

I would not put them under the springs or they will fail. I suggest putting them on top.
